Sometimes it’s the subtle revelations that determine who we are. The fine jewelry of Michelle Fantaci embodies that ethos: delicate pieces of art created from gemstones and gold that allow the wearer to feel at home in their own skin. Defined entirely by the details, each piece feels at once modern and also like a treasured heirloom or lyrical talisman. This intimate knowledge of craftsmanship informs her process, at once studied and yet entirely personal. Her jewelry feels handmade because it is; many pieces are the result of hours of sketching and model building, while others are born from a newfound interest in computer design technology. Although Fantaci works primarily with premium materials, including 14k and 18k golds, precious gems and fancy colored diamonds, there's a sense of ease to her jewelry. Necklaces are created at varying lengths, stacking rings fit together like an elegant puzzle, bangles nuzzle up to one another to create a quietly decadent sum even greater than its parts.
